Happy Hump Day!!
Started my day off today with a morning run outside. I am training for a half marathon, so running is part of my normal routine these days. I had some extra time this morning, so I actually made myself eggs for breakfast instead of my normal granola bar.
Today at Sullivan was the first day of ELA MCAS, so I was on bathroom duty while the students were testing. If a student wanted to go to the bathroom or get a drink during testing, their teacher would have to flag me down so I could escort the student to and from the bathroom….definitely got my steps in today!! When there were no students using the bathroom, I worked on making a “Classroom Behavior/Participation Tracking” poster. This is a new classroom management incentive Mrs. Foley and I are going to start to use next quarter to make sure students are ending the year strong.
Once MCAS were over, I read aloud “Percy Jackson: Lightening Theft” to my afternoon classes. From school, I headed straight to our Seminar in Teaching class. Today’s class was focused on teacher self care. After class, I gave a course evaluation form (CEF) to another education class and then headed to meet Kate and Kat at the pub for our weekly dinners after class.
From dinner, I went to work at the Writer’s Workshop. I had one session and we brainstormed an outline for her paper on Dante’s Inferno. Now I am doing some work in the library with my roommates until I am ready to go watch some Netflix…my teacher self care!!
